About Us

The Blair Oko Golf Academy grew out of Blair Oko’s passion for the sport. After three years on the professional circuit, Blair established BOGA in 1998 to share his experience with other golfers.
For Blair, a Class A CPGA professional golf instructor since 1990, golf is about more than just handicap. BOGA’s mission is to share the joy of the game.
BOGA is located on the second floor of the Kinsmen Twin Arenas in a spacious 10,000-square foot facility complete with four virtual golf simulators, indoor driving range, putting green, pro shop, lockers and a full-service lounge.
